I am going to start my q800 build next week I hope but was wondering what sort of flight times you get with the 4s 5A battery and 850kv motors?
I have been messing about with eCalc but would be good to get real world figures to do a comparison with the virtual ones.
I am torn between the 850kv/10x5 prop and 880kv/12x5 prop and 3s/4s, I have a boat load of 3s already so that would save me a bit of cash
If I understand it correctly, the 12x5 prop will give me longer hover times but probably less agility and shorter high power flight time?
According to eCalc with the 880kv/ 12x5/ 3s (2 x 4ah in parallel giving 8ah) I should get about 15 minutes hover (I don’t do much above 50% throttle cos I am a wimp) and about 11 mins with an extra 500g strapped to it (gopro, gimbal, fpv) - does this sound realistic?
